It probably won’t be his last but it’ll always be his first: Zion OMG Williamson was named the Sporting News Player of the Year Tuesday.
He was also named TSN’s Freshman of the Year.
There’s a lot of good stuff in there but check out what Pitt assistant coach Jeff Capel said about Williamson: “His ability to rebound, to carve out space is what jumps off the page. But the kid competes. He plays with a passion. When you see him in person, just how big he is, how fast he is and how explosive he is, and the fact he has a motor, that’s a scary combination in college basketball.”
And also Coach K’s comments: “He’s better than I thought he would be. This guy is an amazing kid. He’s upbeat all the time, and he’s been a great worker. Everyone sees him as a dunker and how high he can jump, but he’s an incredible athlete in lateral quickness. His feet, great hands, his ability to second jump and move side to side. I didn’t know all those things. I knew he could really jump, and he was going to be really good.”
